Overall, Cole succeeds in his mission to remind us of the greatness of Billy Eckstine, but at the same time he reminds us that Freddy Cole, too, is and always has been his own man.
Freddy Cole's voice may be a bit worn, but it is still expressive and quite effective on this CD, a tribute to Tony Bennett. Rather than re-create Bennett's greatest hits, Cole sings a few of Bennett's favorite songs in a typically straightforward manner. Houston Person's tenor is a major asset on six of the ten selections he always seems to work perfectly with singers and the rhythm section, which includes the excellent pianist John Di Martino, is top-notch.
Since Tony Bennett considers Nat King Cole Freddy's brother one of his main influences, this set makes particular sense. In a climate-controlled, ofttimes sterile studio environ, Freddy Cole's recordings strive for perfection, perhaps a bit too much.
His dusky, slightly raspy, well-weathered voice has an universal, sophisticated appeal that transcends the standards he sings, while his choice of material allows for no modicum of surprise. The extraordinary pianist John Di Martino is here on six of the eleven selections, with Cole on the 88s for the rest. Always a balladeer and a romantic, Cole strings together five songs in the middle of this set where his understated command of vocal and instrumental lyricism is second to none.
His most autobiographical tune is about his hometown, as "On the South Side of Chicago" has Cole reminiscing about the good old days with references to simpler, better times, and a verse referring to the veteran tenor saxophonist Von Freeman. Freddy Cole is best heard at a concert or club date, and this consistent set displays his estimable wares favorably in ways that make listeners realize his jazz juices are ebbing and flowing well past what most singers would consider to be their prime.
This Love of Mine. The colorful liner notes to this sensuous recording by the veteran vocalist and pianist make no bones about Cole's soothing, relaxing approach to standards that range from the obscure Bill Withers' "Watching You, Watching Me" to the way too often recorded a pleasant, smoky version of "Smoke Gets in Your Eyes". The real joy comes from the arrangements by Cole and pianist Cedar Walton. One of the liveliest of these is the final track, a swinging, soulful version of "You're Sensational," but there are imaginative touches of a subtle big-band sound on many other tracks that bring the production up a notch.
Similar-styled performers like Tony Bennett have long garnered more glory for their works, but this is as solid as old-style vocal and trio jazz gets. This Is The Life. Trini Lopez. Johnny Mathis. The Hi-Lo's. Frank Sinatra. The Crystals. Connie Francis. Doris Day. Tony Bennett.
